This picture was actually taken from a "Sonic & Knuckles" promotional poster
where all three of our heroes were standing on a hill. There is
perspective, rather than just a flat picture, hence his fist looks
abnormally large... I do agree that Tails does look older than normal,

Tails_guitar was just a flat poster scan (from a Japanese Sonic calendar).
 Therefore the proportions seem more "realistic."

You'll see once I post the remaining picts of Sonic and Knuckles from the
same poster. They both have the perspective look. :)
